Hope everyone had a good season last year! I hunted more than I ever have and I did during my last few months of building my new house. Thought my wife was going to divorce me because our house flooded 2 times while I was gone before we moved in.


Anyway good luck to everyone this year and if anyone is hunting around Fal give me a shout. Chuy, Pena and I try to get together during the season when I知 down there from Baton Rouge.

Also just started my pool build today and have a hog/predator hunt booked for first weekend of April so I知 sure my wife will love that.

One of the good things that came out of 2020 was Dimmit county bow hunting. Looking forward to 2021.



Coyotes got to him before we did.



Good luck in 2021 everyone.

Still horned in Jim Hogg for most of them but a couple have dropped. Looks like most of South Texas is under a fire weather watch. We need some agua.

Since season ended I've had a 9 and 10 show up. Both weren't on cameras or seen by any of us. The freeze really pushed deer to feeders that normally may not have gone

Last year was best/worst season in a long time for me. Best because for the first time in a very long time I had no guiding commitments and got to just enjoy a lease with friends and family. Worst bc we had a horrible year horn wise. As many have mentioned, Dimmitt county is a little bit dry! Looking forward to a better spring and summer hopefully. For what it’s worth, the best definitely trumped the worst last year!

My brother and his family are down at our place in McMullen Co. They picked out about dozen good sheds. Some still carrying half racks or the whole thing. 2 more weeks and they should be shed out completely.

We are super dry (southern Webb) need rain in a desperate way. Cows have been wearing out feed pens and getting to our CS due to nothing else to eat. Working hard to keep em out so the deer have something to eat. Just nuts as last year we had so much rain.

Corn is only up about a $1 at Buccees in NB. Headed to fill feeders tomorrow.

If I have to pay the $10+ they're asking everywhere else I might have to sign these deermocrats up for unemployment.

I am seeing some does with big bags and empty bellies. They are dropping quite a few now. Not seeing many with the does, so they are still hidden. This rain is timely and will aide in the early survival of a lot of fawns.

Zapata. San Ygnacio..
Green but could always use more rain.

I have a question..

I know that there are a few of us that hunt around Aguilares Texas. There is a dirt road out of the back of town that runs all the way to San Ygnacio Texas.

I hunt off that road. Wondering if there are an others that hunt off that dirt road??..
